    Description

    The Wizard of Oz (MGM, R-1949). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A. MGM's enduring classic was filmed in 1939 for an estimated budget of some 2.75 million dollars. This was one of the most costly films ever made. This lovely half sheet, as well as the other style, are offered in this sale for the first time. This poster presents a great image of Judy Garland and her three friends as well as wonderful scenes from the film. The poster has been paperbacked with touchup to the four borders where there were minor tape stains and tears. The poster was rolled, thus there were no fold lines. There was a cut-line on the right side of the poster which ran from the top border through the Cowardly Lion's face down through the credits. The poster has expertly restored and displays beautifully. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
